California shooting US Police loaded gun Anambra

A 21-year-old Texan who is charged with killing 22 people in an El Paso Walmart told police following his arrest that he was targeting "Mexicans", according to an arrest warrant published on Friday by USA media.

"I'm the shooter", Patrick Crusius said, his hands up, when he was arrested Saturday after the mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso.

The suspect in last weekend's gun massacre in El Paso, Texas, turned himself in and later told authorities he was targeting Mexicans, police have said.

Twenty-two people were killed and about two dozen others were wounded in the shooting.

El Paso police wrote in Crusius' arrest warrant that he used an AK-47 rifle in the Walmart attack. They then saw a man - identified as Patrick Crusius, the 21-year-old charged with capital murder in the case - get out of the auto with his hands in the air, the affidavit said. Federal prosecutors have said they're weighing hate-crime charges.

The document was published on the online messaging board 8chan about 20 minutes before the shooting, authorities said.

Its author rails against an alleged "Hispanic invasion of Texas" and "race mixing", while pledging an imminent attack. The FBI said it opened the domestic terrorism probe in that case after learning the gunman had also explored "violent ideologies" and assembled a list of possible targets across the country.

The El Paso rampage was one of two mass shootings to occur within a day.

Patrick Crusius reportedly told investigators he feared if he committed the attack near the Dallas suburb, his family and acquaintances would learn he was the perpetrator.

El Paso sits on the border with Mexico and has a large Latino population. In Allen, about 11% of residents are Hispanic or Latino, according to census data.

On Friday, President Donald Trump, who travelled to El Paso earlier this week, pledged to take a "serious" look at passing new gun control measures to strengthen the background check system.
